Senator Rand Paul, a staunch critic of the NSA’s mass data collection program, has urged that president Obama’s assurances that he will oversee changes in the spy agency’s practices is akin to a “fox guarding the henhouse.”

Demanding that Congress “step up”, along with the Supreme Court, Paul noted “I don’t think you can expect the fox to guard the henhouse. You can’t expect the fox to oversee the henhouse.”

During the appearance on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom, Paul also warned that in light of previous statements, any “fix” promoted by the president is likely to be just an “illusion”.

“We can’t allow the White House to be the one in charge of overseeing the White House,” he said. “They say collecting all your records is not spying. It is spying.”
